This beautifully bright and elegant Chardonnay is sourced from the exquisite Petaluma Gap AVA located on the Sonoma Coast. The Petaluma Gap AVA is defined by its unique micro-climate that produces outstanding Chardonnay grapes. Daily coastal breezes and fog sweep inland from the Pacific Ocean and down the “Gap” each afternoon creating cool temperatures. These coastal conditions produce absolutely stunning Chardonnay grapes. We are absolutely in LOVE with this wine!
A radiant, pale straw color with just a whisper of green. Aromas of green apple, lemon curd, and delicate jasmine tea tangle in the glass, accented with hints of guava and the fresh purity of crisp air after a rainstorm. The palate enters with a vivacious acidity, swathed in layers of sumptuous lemon sorbet, toasty oak, white nectarine, and juicy tangerine. The finish is soft and lingering, with a parting pop of acidity. This wine is pure finesse in a bottle, and will continue to drink beautifully now and through the next 3 years.
